Constant Return to Scale, Data Envelopment Analysis, Super Efficiency, Threshold Value.
Data Envelopment Analysis is a linear programming technique that assigns efficiency scores to firms engaged in producing similar outputs employing similar inputs. Extremely efficient firms are potential Outliers. The method developed detects Outliers, implementing Stochastic Threshold Value, with computational ease. It is useful in data filtering in BIG DATA problems.
